NHK gave top play to a report that one month has passed since the first powerful earthquake jolted Kumamoto Prefecture, saying that many people are still living in shelters. NTV led with a report on the final women’s volleyball qualifiers for the Rio Olympics. Other news included reports on a press conference by Tokyo Governor Masuzoe in which he explained allegations that he used political funds for family vacations, and a memorial service for stage director Yukio Ninagawa.


Major front-page items in Monday morning’s national papers included the Justice Ministry’s plan to revise the civil law concerning inheritances; updates on the Kumamoto earthquakes; a planned tripartite naval drill by the U.S., Japan, and India off Okinawa next month; and mounting momentum for military-academia research collaboration.
